    Default Changing Cameras

    What to you forumers think about me selling off my Sony H2 and buying a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50?

    I am kinda attracted by the manual focus and zoom.

    Sony H2 also has manual focus function what.

    WHY do you want the manual focus and zoom?

    Be sure it's not the BBB virus at work.

    It's a manual zoom, not a ladder!

    Ever thought about the Fujifilm prosumers?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Fujifilm prosumers have much better ISO performance.

    Hi there

    I am very new to DSLR. I jus bought a Sony alpha.

    Can anyone advise me how I should start taking good professional pictures?
    There are 101 kinds of functions, which one should I start using first?

    Thank you photographers!

    This is off topic, but there is a guide book specifically for the A100. Its sold in most major bookstores and details the functions and uses of the A100. Should be quite useful for any new dslr user, especially Sony A100 users. Check out MPH, Times and such. Sure have one. Else there's lots of other books relevant to digital slrs.

    And for hands on guide, maybe you can join the KM/Sony outings. There's one next week.

    Vesak Day Outing

    Bunch of friendly people who'll be glad to help you. Do join if you can.

    And check here for more Sony discussions.

    Welcome to the Alpha family!

    Pardon me hairygorillaz for answering Le Anne's query.

    Hi Le Anne.

    Good choice for a cam. Welcome to Sony and CS.
    You must do readings. There are simple guides like the HMW Sony alpha DSLR guide (available in bookshops like Kinokuniya) and another one by David Busch (available in Computer book store in Funan) . The former is simpler.

    Visit the SONY/KM thread if you need help and join us in our outings.

    Regards,

    no worries...

    one reason that i would like to change is the huge amount of noise. At ISO400 its completeply unacceptable

    For low noise, you cant go wrong with Canon DSLRs.

    Consider Fuji S5Pro too! Awesome Hi-ISO performance and not to mention the widest (afaik) dynamic range to date.

    Only thing is the price.... and as all brands, you win some you lose some. Think they said the card write speed is slow. But I wouldn't really mind if I could afford the body and Nikon lenses.
